    Doctor Who: The Day Of The Doctor

    My god, that was epic on SO Many levels! So good to see David Tenant back, watching him and Matt Smith bounce off each other was immense! The appearance of Tom Baker, the small appearance of Peter Capaldi, the gathering of all the Doctors again the end, the one liners, so so much to take in!

    I'm off to rewatch it right now!

    I'm a massive fan, but that episode could have been so much better, an 1.15 wasn't long enough.

    Steve Moffat does seem to only write storylines that have a back story of 3 episodes.

    Russell T Davis would have been writing parts of this story line in over a number of series.

    I can only hail this as magnificent! I would've settled for two hours though!

    One or two pieces will need addressing should he ever find Gallifrey though. For instance, where was Rassilon, what happened to him. What happened to the 'Hell' that the war had unleashed that we heard about in the End of Time?

    Still.... I can't wait to find out!

    Fifty More Years Please!

    Yea, a two hour Ep would have been great!

    While I don't have many questions regarding historical discrepancies due to lack of knowledge on the original series, I always thought that anything regarding the time war/galafray was 'time locked' and nothing could be changed, and the doctor could not have any interaction with it? So how has this episode come to be?

    I thought it was great
    Wasn't there a bit in one series though where the Doctor interacted with the time lords at some sort of council and ending up destroying them because they were all corrupt? (except the Master, of course) Or am I going mad?

    The problem with time travel is that there are many versions of reality...

    I can't wait to see what the new Doctor is like. It's a shame he was only on screen for about a second in this episode. 32 days to go!

    I assume that it was Bad Wolf Rose who unlocked the Time Lock to give them a chance to fix it.

    So is John Hurt technically #9 now? Even if not with him and the double Tennant regeneration surely the Doctor is dead at the end of Capaldi?

    No, he's the War Doctor apparently and so doesn't count.

    Not only that...various episodes have given different regeneration counts...one said it was 500 or so (can't remember exact figure).

    Not a bad episode, but feel it missed out on a lot, and could have actually shown details of the war...properly
